GUEST SPEAKER - Baba Ly of Catholic Charities

Baba was born and raised in the West African country of Mauritania, a perfect geographical and cultural merging where African black people live with Arab descendant Berbers. He grew up speaking his native language Pulaar, but also learned to speak French, English, Wolof and Arabic.

In Mauritania, Baba worked at the U.S. Embassy in Mauritania in the Economic and Commercial Division. Prior to that, he worked in procurement for a multinational corporation, where his skills in cross-cultural engagement were honed. Baba has masters degrees from universities in Mauritania and France.

Since immigrating to the U.S., Baba has been involved in community-based organizations and public schools to support immigrants’ cultural, social and economic integration. He has taught ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) and served as cultural broker in organizations throughout Greater Portland.

Baba is currently the Assistant Director of Refugee and Immigration Services at Catholic Charities of Maine and serves as the Chair of In Her Presence. Baba is also an artist who spends his spare time painting abstract art.
